Creators showing solidarity with Israel after Hamas bloodbath on October 7

The Hamas jihadist organization in the Gaza strip launched a horrifying attack on southern Israel this weekend, murdering hundreds and even taking women and children hostage. Following this, it's good to find there are comics creators who're showing their support for Israel in such an awful time. For example, Billy Tucci:
Update: Tucci seems to have erased his post on X, but did provide one on Instagram.

And there's also Bryan Hill and Mark Sable on Instagram:
Sable, however, runs the atrocious gauntlet of moral equations, and visiting the Old City of Jerusalem isn't going to alleviate the problem. It sounds like he's buying into the same propaganda "journalist" Heidi MacDonald does. Let's not forget Sable once penned Graveyard of Empires, which was pretty fishy.

While I appreciate if liberal creators are voicing solidarity, this begs a vital question as to whether they'll continue to support the Democrats, seeing how their policies appeasing Iran with billions of dollars played a part in leading to this catastrophe. Seriously, anybody who continues to support such a movement after all the trouble they caused, which'll have a most traumatizing effect for years to come, and damage that'll take epochs to clean up, isn't making a very convincing effort to prove they're willing to defend Israel properly.

It now remains to be seen if more in the comics industry proper will be willing to not just support Stan Lee, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster's Israeli brethren, but also shun those who've voiced hostility, like Saladin Ahmed, who no longer seems to be on social media, as the following indicates: And per this screencap, look who else appears to have fled X/Twitter lately:
G. Willow Wilson, the writer who developed what became Marvel's form of Islamic propaganda in the past decade, the Muslim Ms. Marvel, is no longer using the platform. And that's good. The less such people involved in comics writing using these social media outlets, the better. But surely even more vital a query is whether the industry as a whole will shun them now, after all the harm they caused over the years, along with another writer named Sana Amanat. And better still, is the comics industry as we know it now willin to combat the issue of Islamic terrorism in the pages of four-color press?

Update: one more cartoonist who's voiced solidarity with Israel is Bosch Fawstin: And that's a very vital point the left-wing creators in comicdom would do well to consider, if they really want to prove they respect the memories of Siegel, Shuster, Lee and Kirby.

Update 2: one more left-wing, anti-Israel comics writer who appears to have fled X is the following:
Nadia Shammas, who even had the gall to put a PLO flag on her account. It'll be very fortunate if she no longer posts on X any more than Ahmed and Wilson.

Update 3: here's one more by Bill Willingham: While I've had my disagreements with Willingham in the past, I do appreciate this.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
